Governor Kim GuadagnoNJ Home | Services A to Z | Departments/Agencies | FAQs DOE A to Z: A B CD E FG H IJ K LM N OP Q RS T UV W XY Z # Start Independent and Dependent Variables in an Experiment...Say what??? Do you ever teach a lesson, think it went awesomely, and then realize that not a single person in your room understands anything that was coming out of your mouth? Yeah...that is how our first science lesson went this year. Science is one of those subjects that is so very hit or miss with me. Sometimes, I think I do a spectacular job teaching and other times....not so much. The latter was the case with the first experiment we did this year.

Frayer Model The Frayer Model is a vocabulary development tool. In contrast with a straight definition, the model helps to develop a better understanding of complex concepts by having students identify not just what something is, but what something is not. The center of the diagram shows the concept being defined, while the quadrants around the concept are used for providing the details. Words that work well with the Frayer Model include quadrilaterals, insects and democracies. We have included two variations of the model that we have seen used in school settings.
